About Us
We base our farm decisions on three main values: stewardship, community and education. Our commitment to stewardship of the land and the planet is the base of the following management choices: rotational grazing, a focus on soil health and carbon sequestration, putting the capital investment into the aerated static pile compost system in an effort to reduce burn piles and keep that biomass in our island fertility cycle, putting in 13.5 KW photovoltaic system, a focus on energy efficiencies, grazing of our marshlands that respects water quality and bird nesting, using the farm as an interface to talk about stewardship and climate change any time we can. In 2017 we were awarded the Finnie award for stewardship, which was a surprise recognition from our community.
Practices
Beef- grass fed, rotationally grazed Murray Grey beef overwintered off pasture on island haylage.

All animals are slaughtered on farm the Island Grown Farmer's Cooperative USDA mobile slaughter unit.
